In this tutorial, we make a game called "1 to 10" rather than tic-tac-toe (naughts and crosses). We will construct A Board Class in the first part along with a tester class. The idea is to move a page either one or two positions, and the one in the last position loses. The strategy is not to difficult, so eventually we can make a robot player who will always play perfectly.
